Race Report- Greenfield Dragway, May 27-28 by Scott Sprague



It was an overcast and cool weekend at the dragway but the first race is in the books!  A total of 114 entries were out for the first event of the season, presented by Pro-Tech Roofing & Construction and Pettipas Family Automotive.  Although Friday and early Saturday were a wash, time trials did get underway just after 1pm.
In Saturday gambler’s race action Benny Nieston from Millville picked-up the win in the Box category by defeating Windsor’s Vaughn Boone in the final. No Box saw Scott Underhill from Bedford take out Dan Nickerson from Lower Sackville in a battle of the Stock eliminator cars; while Wyatt Rankin from Mount Uniacke beat Lacey Weir of Kentville in Junior Dragster action.
